Picture this…it’s a Saturday in the late spring of 1997, me and my two girlfriends decided to skip out of our Cosmo (cosmetology) class and go to Boston Market. One of the girls drove a super-sweet, white 1996 Chevy Camaro SS with black leather interior and T-Tops (her birthday present from her dad). The sun was shining, the T-Tops were off, I was riding shotgun and Around The World by Daft Punk was playing on a loop from the CD player.
This was one of the few moments in my life I truly felt bad-ass. Turning the heads of strangers as we cruised around town. Premium sound kicking out the coolest (in my opinion) electronic dance music. I think that this was the first time I had heard EDM and I’ve had an affinity for it ever since.
Flash forward 18 years… I am almost 36 years old, married mom of 2, driving my sweet, sweet Honda CR-V and Around The World is streaming via Bluetooth audio as I drive to my daughters’ Wednesday dance class. I am instantly transported back to that sunny Saturday where I was just one of the cute chicks in that white Camaro, jamming to Daft Punk.
